Do you know someone who loves story time and likes making up his or her own stories? If you do, you’ll want to find out more about the Milwaukee PBS KIDS Writers Contest.

The Milwaukee PBS KIDS Writers Contest offers children in kindergarten through third grade an opportunity to build critical literacy skills by creating their own stories.

The Milwaukee PBS KIDS Writers Contest is a local contest designed to promote hands-on, active learning. Students create their own stories and illustrations and submit their original work. The entries must arrive by 5 pm on March 20, 2020 at Milwaukee PBS.


Children living in the following counties should submit stories to Milwaukee PBS: Dodge, Jefferson, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Sheboygan, Walworth, Washington, and Waukesha counties.


Judging is planned for April and winners will be notified. All other entries will be returned by May 31st if a self-addressed, stamped envelope is included. Entrants may also pick up their books at Milwaukee PBS.

Milwaukee PBS encourages all students in the television viewing area, kindergarten through third grade, to participate. Milwaukee PBS appreciates the efforts of the participating students. Each entrant will receive a certificate of participation, a free pass for one visit to the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum in Milwaukee and other small thank you prizes.
